Vinchu Kata, Lonavala Reviews

  • Good point. Specially great feeling if sat alone on the edge, enjoying the view. Good place for group trips. Keep water-bottle handy.

  • Can not express that feelings or that view in the word! You should experience this by yourself. You can enjoy Nice n short trek of one day return food is nice too

  • This spot is quiet an extension of the Lohagad fort. Best time to visit is in monsoon. One should wait until sunset to have an actual experience

  • Best place to visit in monsoon season. If you reached top the place is very Beautiful. You feel cool air and sometimes clouds will passes if you stand there.

  • The Lohagad hill extends to the northwest to a fortified spur, called Vinchukata (Scorpion's tail) because of its resembling shape. There are railing created through the perimeter of the fort for providing safety to tourists visiting the place. Like always visit early in the non-monsoon months. Advisable to wear proper footwear, headgear and carry your own water.
